There is no one more special than Leslie Charles, CSP. Leslie is a qualified author, speaker and facilitator. MSAE has used her for keynotes, executive round table facilitation, breakouts, team building and private consulting. The best thing about Leslie is that if she cannot help you she will tell you, and will connect you to people who can help you. She is a key resource for me.

We were looking for a unique speaker who isn’t run of the mill. We wanted it to feel like we were hearing a story, while still learning, with an approachable vibe. We got just that with Leslie. She offers practical advice that speaks to the mind and the soul. For those who enjoy takeaways, she’s written books, — some are fun quick reads, others to be used as a good reference. Leslie is real people with real experience, sharing real stories and making a real difference.

Leslie is a totally engaging speaker! I have had the pleasure of working with Leslie numerous times and she is the consummate professional. Always prepared, on target with the expected message and keeps the group engaged throughout the sessions. Her humor is contagious but she packs serious content for attendees to mull over – long after the event. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again!

Charlotte Michigan’s LEAD program gives up-and-coming community and business leaders skills to grow into leadership roles of the future. Our program facilitators are some of the best in the region — and you can’t have ‘the best in the region’ if you don’t have Leslie Charles, nationally known speaker, author and facilitator. We are lucky to have her present our module, COMMUNICATE to CONNECT. The feedback from participants reflects Leslie’s long-lasting teachings such as ‘Got me thinking about word choice, and the idea of yes AND instead of yes, but.’ Leslie has participated in LEAD for four years and we look forward to many more!

This is the fourth year Leslie has participated in LEAD and we look forward to many more!
